    That would be the easiest way.

    You could add 4377 MB filesystems on partition 2 and 3 (i.e.
    /dev/rdsk/c0b0t0dopx) and mount on the block device /dev/dsk/c0b0t0d0px.
    It will be necessary for you to manually calculate the size of the
    filesystem in blocks. See "man vkfs".

    You will have more flexibility by re-installing and using multiple slices.
